But what do participant’s experience when they interact with all those great services you’ve set up? This webinar covers this topic and specifically dives into what participants experience as they go through the various RaceDay tools available for events who use RunSignup’s registration. Since these integrate with one another on the backend, participants receive a more streamlined and connected experience.

Four Ways RunSignup Can Help Make Your Ultra Race a Success

Ultra distance events come with many of the same needs as typical race events like 5Ks and half marathons, but they also have very unique requirements and things to consider. For example, many ultra events don’t use a timer to officially score the race due to either the size of the registrations or the conditions of the course. However, events still need a way to provide finisher data to participants. Ultra event organizers address these unique situations through a combination of creativity, technology and sometimes by applying the good old fashioned approach to endurance experiences like manually writing down participants’ finish times.
